Bug#926947: d-i.debian.org: Setting the 'd-i network-console/password password' preseed variable doesn't change password of 'installer' user

Control: tag -1 - d-i + patch pending
Control: reassign -1 network-console

Hi Vladislav,

Our usual catch-alls for reporting bugs are debian-installer and
installation-reports; d-i.debian.org is mostly meant for our own

> I'm trying to install Debian 10 with preseed configuration. A password
> of an 'installer' user was set like this:
> d-i anna/choose_modules string network-console
> d-i network-console/password password password
> d-i network-console/password-again password password
> This configuration worked well with the previous Debian releases,
> however looks like the latest Debian Buster ignores the password from
> configuration and leaves it as empty in /etc/shadow
> The content of /etc/shadow :
> installer::1:0:99999:7:::
> Preseed configuration was taken from this source:
> https://d-i.debian.org/manual/example-preseed.txt

I think I've just fixed this issue after some exchanges on this other
bug report: https://bugs.debian.org/928299

This should be easy to confirm: segfaults in /var/log/syslog?

Feel free to follow up once version 1.81 is in the archive and is picked
up by d-i.

Thanks for reporting anyway!
